Re: Discover Denial Score

From what I understand, myFICO scores are supposed to be helpful when you get a loan for a car or a house. CCCs use all kinds of weird scoring methods. When Chase mailed me my card they said they used their own proprietary scoring system. So for CCs I would take myFICO scores as a general guideline, but more accurate in general compared to FAKO scores.

Barclaycard Apple Financing (2100), Discover More (2500), US Bank Visa Platinum (2000), CFNA (2200), Chase Freedom (500), Capital One (1500), HSBC Platinum Master Card (750), Nebraska Furniture Mart (1000)

Re: Discover Denial Score

That's incorrect. Discover does not use EQ FICO Beacon 5! The ones sold here are Beacon 5s. They use a different EQ FICO but I'm not sure which one. I called to ask when they sent me my approval letter because my EQ Beacon 5 FICO was 729 but the EQ FICO they sent was 680s. They wouldnt tell me which version they use. There has been threads about this that you can search
BCE: $0/$11,200, CSP: $0/$6500, Chase Priority Club: $0/$3500, Freedom: $0/$6000, Barclays NFL: $0/$7000 Discover: $0/$12,500, Citi Dividend: $0/$3500

EQ FICO - 728
TU FICO - 734
EX FICO(AMEX) - 712

Re: Discover Denial Score

The letter definitely tells you what scoring they used. It definitely said Beacon something....

Re: Discover Denial Score

I just got my letter from Discover. It does list an EQ score different from the myFICO EQ score for me as well. Do they send one to everybody? I thought CCC only sent it when you didn't get the best terms. (I didnt?) It doesn't list details other than you were approved and here is your score and a bar chart for reference.

Yah, I've read the letter back to front, front to back, it definitely doesn't say which EQ FICO they use, it just says Type of Credit Score used was FICO, and that they acquired it from Equifax

Re: Discover Denial Score

Does the leter indicate the scre range? If the high end of the score is 950  it is the enhanced Beacon 5.0 most likley the bankcard model.

Mine says 300-850. There's nothing to indicate what type of EQ score it is.

Re: Discover Denial Score

Any one come across a definitive answer to exactly what EQ scoring model Discover uses?

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
